:lol If that isn't an admission of their problems ... :lol






Look like we may actually see a BD version of the 360 :p

Wastes hours checking old Famitsu software data, but that's why we love him.

Hope next issue is a blowout of a bunch of Japanese games, not just Bayonetta.

That SCIV one better be true. My dream for SCIV has always been Ryu Hayabusa for 360 and Kratos for PS3.
and Link for the Wii

Final Fantasy IV(DS) - B

what did they say?
I know I should have wrote some of the rest but I got lazy :(

"
The Good: Classic RPG, more polished than the FFIII remake.
The Bad: 3D style feels pokier than the 2D original, ultimately superfluous.
Farewell, My Easytype: Hope you like your RPGs challenging!

What is wrong with Top Spin 3?
The bad: Pretty ruthless controls

I was hoping for some more Nintendo-related rumors with E3 coming up so soon. Oh well, not long now.

Interesting that no one A+'d MGS4. Can't wait to read the text for myself.

If those GTA and SCIV rumors don't turn out to be true then the Q's street cred is going down the shitter. You can't just print rumors like that and not have some kind of solid proof.
